Hurricane Irma's winds being felt in the Keys

Hurricane Irma's winds being felt in the Keys

In one of the biggest evacuations ever ordered in the U.S., about 6.4 million people in Florida were warned to leave.

OK, it was a semi-serious warning.

Strong winds and storm surge along the coast are threats, but heavy rainfall over the same areas are another.

What's with all these hurricane forecast models?

"Pray, pray for everybody in Florida", Governor Rick Scott said on Fox News.

"No resource or expense will be spared to protect families", the governor said in his latest of several updates delivered throughout the day on Saturday.

After filming the waves for around 10 seconds, he is suddenly blown back by one massive wave. In the center of the the storm where there is extreme low pressure, water is drawn upward.

The nursing home deaths brought the total number of storm-related fatalities in Florida to 20 and illustrated the urgency of restoring electricity to millions of people across the southern state.

"Life-threatening storm surge is occurring now in the Keys and is expected to begin this morning in Southwest Florida", Scott wrote in a tweet Sunday.

About 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) of coastline from Tampa Bay to the mid-South Carolina coast could see storm surge.

The President added that the response and recovery is "gonna cost a lot of money".

"The Everglades won't stop the potential flooding to inhabited areas", Rhome said.

"I'd be lying if I said there weren't any distractions", FAU quarterback Daniel Parr, a South Floridian, said after the Owls lost 31-14 to the ninth-ranked Badgers. There's going to be overflows.

The forecasts even have it at hurricane strength well into Georgia on Monday.

"It certainly could inundate the entire island". "Only 70 miles of the panhandle is not under a hurricane warning".

The storm has left hundreds of thousands without power in Florida, with tens of thousands bracing for in shelters. The sheriff's office advised against the use of firearms during the storm. They are expected to start arriving early on Monday morning.

Trash cans can be seen hurtling down the street in winds described as hurricane-like, trees have been ripped from the ground crushing vehicles and properties and sparks have started to fly from the powerlines above the quaint houses. As it can handle about two C-130 planes at a time, the plan is to land two every two hours, keeping a steady flow of goods.

Amid urgent warnings from state officials to evacuate before it was too late, downtown Miami was all but abandoned on Saturday.

The game is now set for Oct. 7, which was supposed to be an off week for both teams. "It's not really time to go outside yet".

Before Harvey hit, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued an updated outlook for the Atlantic hurricane season on Aug. 9. No other vehicles or people were involved. "We're hoping for the best - we've bought nonperishable foods and water, and we have a flashlight". Ossman had been working at the Hardee Correctional Institute for 21 years.

At least 24 people were killed as Irma pounded the northern Caribbean.

The last time Tampa was hit by a major hurricane was in 1921. Petersburg area, once thought to be relatively safe from harm, suddenly found itself in the storm's crosshairs.

The storm's impact was widespread.

He then stands up and walks away, presumably with some larger-than-life photos.
